We would like to have a website so family and friends can view our trip around oz.
Can anyone recommend a simple free website we can use to write a diary and post photos.

Download Picasa2 (free on the net) and create your own Blog (Web Log). Simply select what photos you want displayed, click on the Blog button down the bottom, select the layout and some titles and it's all done. No complicated scripts etc. just send those people who you want to be able to visit the site the address. Have fun with it

Start up a yahoo group and post pics, etc in the free space they give you. Bonus is that others can post messages to you as well.

you can limit who looks at the group to family / friends only

Most internet service providers (ISPs) provide a free web site facility (usually say 10Mb) for subscribers. Check your ISP's site for details: many of them give detailed instructions on how to set up your site.

An alternative is free web hosting: do a Google search for "free web site hosting" or something like that. Be warned though that many of these sites have ads, and that they may generate spam.

Once you have the site set up, you will be able to upload images and text. Some sites let you do that from a web page, but others require an FTP program (eg the free WS_FTP). The latter is convenient if you are using your own laptop, but less so if relying on internet cafes.

I suggest learning the basics of HTML (the language of web pages) before you go. There are lots of good books and free web tutorials on the subject. Try NetGuide for starters.
